According to the Indiska Board it opens up for continuity of leadership and shows the owners’ strong commitment to the company.
“The digital transition occurs rapidly, and an increased presence on digital channels is crucial for competitiveness and growth as well as ongoing continuing to sharpen the customer offering. To ensure the continued expansion and tougher demands from customers we’ve chosen to bring in a new CEO with authentic experiences from the expansion, alteration and digital conversion,” says Patrik Tillman, chairman of Indiska.
He adds that the Board of Directors and David Rönnberg share values and have the same view on the business challenges and Indiska’s market opportunities ahead.
